The White House

This post is written for Friday Fictioneers.

They had made the reservations months in advance. They had visions of what they would see. The Oval Office, the East Room, a walk around the Rose Garden, these would be the things that they would tell their children and grandchildren. In their wildest dream even the President stopped by and said hello.

“You have arrived at your destination,” the GPS on their rental car announced.

“Carole, this can’t be right,” Ted said.

“I put the White House in the search bar.”

Ted, looking out his car widow saw the sign: “White House Pub and Grill.”

  1. Working on a paper for my master’s degree, I typed “White House” into the search bar and got a porn site. I was so shocked for a moment that I couldn’t even think to delete it 🙂

    Great story, Danny. I’m glad their White House was just a pub!

  2. Oh, what a disappointment for them. And what a good chuckle for us. I love it. And I seldom use Satnav. I can send you all the wrong way by misreading a map just as well as the tech can. 😀

  3. I could only chuckle. The reliance on tech does have its drawback. We had a incident where a eight wheeled truck went the wrong way down a narrow one way street and blocked the road. The driver blamed Sat Nav.
